Abstract (en)

A method of controlling access to an Internet based controlled service, provided on a content server includes the step of using a CLI-enabled telephone having an account with a telephone network service provider, to call a specified destination at which a responder to the call retrieves the calling number and passes that number to a matching server. The call may be either a voice call or a text message, made with a mobile (cellular) telephone. The Internet site on the content server is accessed using an Internet terminal and the telephone number of the CLI-enabled telephone is submitted to the content server, for forwarding to the matching server. The matching server compares the numbers passed to it by the responder with the numbers passed to it by the content server and if a match is found, then the content server allows access to the Internet based service. A suitable charge may be collected through the telephone account of the CLI-enabled telephone by making an elevated charge for the originating call to the specified destination. <IMAGE>
